Andrew Wiggins - the Next LeBron! - is Picking His College Tuesday, and it'll Probably Be Kentucky or Florida State

Andrew Wiggins, the Best High School Basketball Player Since LeBron, will descend from the firmament Tuesday at 12:15 and make his college decision. It is the best-kept secret since the Manhattan Project. The reason everyone thinks Florida State is because his dad was a star there; the reason everyone else thinks Kentucky is because … Kentucky. Kansas and North Carolina are thought to be fringe contenders.

When I posted my Top 25 for next season, I had Kentucky 1st, with or without the 6-foot-7 Wiggins. With him, you will definitely hear some undefeated talk, and it’ll be a subplot of the season. If Wiggins goes to Florida State, I’d assume they’ll have a year similar to what Kevin Durant did during his pit-stop at Texas – very good regular season, eye-popping numbers, but probably not able to make a deep March run on his own. Wiggins is a mortal lock to be the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA draft.

Only one reporter will be allowed to attend Tuesday’s announcement – Grant Traylor of the Herald Dispatch in Huntington, West Virginia. He’s covered Wiggins this season at Huntington Prep. (Here’s how he’s covered Wiggins.) Want ground zero of Andrew Wiggins mania?┬áCheck out Traylor’s twitter mentions. People are losing their mind over this decision. Traylor has gained about 6,000 followers in 12 hours, and I fully expect him to appear on ESPN Tuesday.

Back to Wiggins. How refreshing! A high school star (not a maybe-he’ll-be-a-star type, but a legit superstar) shunning the announcement on ESPN and keeping the media at bay. I love this kid already.
